Owled Again~

I love owls…I have yet to see one in the wild, though! I’ve seen more bats than owls – these nocturnal birds are elusive, and remarkably silent. Wonderful photos!

The Living Coast Discovery Center in The San Diego Bay National Wildlife Refuge is breeding these remarkable little owls and visitors can get up close and personal with these very curious creatures which is an incredible experience.

Artificial burrows have been set up here where you can watch the owls and their nests in the wild which is quite fascinating!

    I am so grateful for your advocacy on behalf of these amazing creatures. The thought of them becoming extinct in San Diego is very upsetting to me. Gratitude to you my friend!
